Jazz Festivals

When it all started, many in the jazz world must have thought, “That Colorado altitude has taken its toll on those guys. Start a traditional jazz festival in this era?”

But a small group of dedicated jazz-lovers did just that, and to the amazement of many, this July we present the seventeenth rendition of the Evergreen Jazz Festival. It promises to be another outstanding event, living up to the enthusiastic description from a national columnist as “the best jazz festival anywhere!”

Jazz Appreciation Month - Spotlight Venues & Live Jazz

Apr 9, 2018

Everybody knows the Blue Note in New York.  But the name goes way back.  There were a number of Blue Note clubs around the U.S.  There was even a Blue Note in Boulder for a few years.  Today, there are Blue Note clubs in Rio, Milan, Hawaii, Napa, Beijing, Tokyo and Nagoya.


We’ve gathered up recordings of some of the great live sessions captured at clubs called “The Blue Note,” and we’ll share them with you throughout the day!  It’s a swinging celebration of Jazz Appreciation Month!
